The British Transplant Games is the flagship event of charity Transplant Sport, aiming to give the transplant community a chance to celebrate the gift of life they have received from donors and donor families. Thousands of heart, lung, liver, kidney and other transplant recipients compete in 21 different sporting events in different UK cities each year. The 2021 Games will take place in Leeds from August 5-8.

The Games delivered a £1 million economic boost to Newport and surrounding area when it was supported by The Welsh Government and Newport City Council in 2019.
